RCMS Track and Field team participates in state championships
In May 27 Issue

The Russell County Middle School Track & Field athletes traveled to Paul Laurence Dunbar in Lexington for the KYCCCA Middle School State Championships.

The athletes that participated were Trevor Robertson, Blake Ellis, Zak Schultz, Selena Padilla, Erica Mann, Breanna Hudson, Emily York, Bailey Phillips, Bailey Bean, and Gabby Bean. Those young athletes have a world of talent, and it only increases as they each gain experience.

Topping off the performances was Trevor Robertson medaled 3rd in the 800 meter run out of 73 runners, and 5th in the 1600 meter run out of 74 runners.

Only the top 8 receive medals at state level competition.

Trevor improves each year in his running abilities, and everyone can expect to see great things happen as Trevor continues and enters high school.

Selena Padilla placed 5th overall and medaled with a jump of 4’6.

It was not her best jump, but she has the passion to be the best at the event which makes her drive to improve on her on jumps limitless.  

Bailey Bean medal in the 300 meter hurdles with her season best time of 52.42 and medaled 7th overall out of 44 hurdlers.

The girls 4X400 relay team (Emily York, Gabby Bean, Bailey Phillips and Bailey Bean) placed 13th out of 45 teams with their season best time running together as a middle school team with a time of 4:45.26.

The same grouping of girls would have medaled in the 4X200 relay, but ran out of their zone, which is a hard lesson, but one likely they will never make again.

Blake Ellis had good performances in each of his events just missing the top eight in several events.

Ellis placed 12th out of 62 in the long jump with a season best jump of 17’1.5, and placing 10th on the triple jump out of 39, and 11th in the discus with only one throw, out of 54 throwers.

 Everyone performed well in their events, and the middle school athletes will be back in action on May 29th at Knox Central for the KHSSA Class 2A Region 5 Regional competition.
